The Tel Aviv district prosecutor brought charges on Thursday against a group of minors who are accused of organizing and carrying out a series of attacks againt Sudanese and Eritrean migrants in Tel Aviv.

According to the charges, the members of the gang attacked migrants using different weapons, and robbed them in some instances. The indictment is against 10 minors over racially-motivated attacks, and a further female minor is named over property offenses.

The attacks were carried out last month, reportedly with the aim of avenging attacks that had been publicized recently in the Israeli media.

Three of the instances described in the indictment took place near Hatikva market in south Tel Aviv. The gang attacked African migrants with boards and clubs, and in two of the incidents, the minors stole bicycles from the victims.

In another incident that also took place in the Hatikva neighborhood, the group attacked an Eritrean migrant with boards, stones, and iron chains, and beat him on the head and body. The victim required hospital treatment after the attack. Another victim was beaten with a motorcycle helmet, a golf club, and a metal chain near a park in the same neighborhood.

Some of the eleven youths are also charged with breaking into the shop of a migrant, from which they stole goods worth some NIS 2,000. Some of the minors also stole a cash register from another shop they brok into.

Last week, Tel Aviv Police arrested the minors and at least two adults on suspicion of carrying out the attacks.

An Israeli citizen of Ethiopian origin was assaulted on Wednesday evening in Tel Aviv during a demonstration calling for the deportation of African migrants, just a week following the violent protest in the Hatikva neighborhood, as dozens of protesters gathered on Wednesday near the central bus station in south Tel Aviv demanding the deportation of African migrants from Israel.

The protest followed an anti-migrant demonstration that turned violent last week, with some 1,000 protesters in Tel Aviv’s Hatikva neighborhood calling for the ousting of African asylum seekers from Israel. Demonstrators attacked African passersby while others lit garbage cans on fire and smashed car windows.

    What on earth made these people think they would find asylum in that hellhole? Didn`t they see what was being done to the Palestinians?

    Although it is entirely relevant to establish a motive, a crime is a crime, and the motive should not outweigh the crime, unless it is to give leniency, rather than doubled charges and sentencing.

    Just to think that a Jew-loving east-African Christian could own a business! They’re trying to take over israel!

    Too bad the world’s not bigger, because then when we turn our backs on those screwballs, we’d be out of range as well.

    What kind of nation or country is this? No country in the world ever treats its minority citizens like that…

    These are the same people who one day were victims of the WWII who have been complaining & criticizing the Nazi Germany; now they are following the same footsteps of those Nazis…

    How history repeats itself and people don’t learn from it… It is shame

    Hey Al, why do you keep comparing what the jews are doing to the German people? Hitler and the German people were lied about and demonized just like they lie and demonize Ahmadinejad and the Iranian people.

    There were no gassings and six million didn’t die. That was wartime propaganda to obtain the land of Palestine.

    People in countries like Germany and Hungary are jailed for even questioning the Holocaust. Why would any one be jailed for questioning history? Truth doesn’t fear investigation.

    Furthermore – 64 million people died during World War 11. Are you trying to tell me the only victims were jews?

    What is new? Israelis are racist beasts who not only attack their victims but steal their money as well!

    Where’s the flatulent, fingerpointing, always-whining Abe Foxman to denounce this act of “hate, intolerance and bigotry?”

    Come on, you uber-hypocrite, we’re waiting…

    “These are the same people who one day were victims of the WWII who have been complaining & criticizing the Nazi Germany; now they are following the same footsteps of those Nazis…”

    These are the same people who were running the monstrous tyranny in the Soviet Union and whose bloodthirsty Bolshevik brethren were responsible for the liquidation of tens of millions of “enemies of the state” and even greater number of millions that were persecuted and suffered because of this Talmud-based political system!

    The crimes of Jewish communism dwarfs the atrocity propaganda that is blamed on the National Socialists!

    Please don’t insult the Nazis by comparing them to ‘race-of-the-mind’ genocidal Khazar “Jews.”
